A sentence:

He listens to music while practicing handwriting.

While sounds okay here.

But, in this sentence:

He is listening to music while practicing handwriting. (Present continuous tense)

Here while doesn't sound perfect to me ( a besic learner ).

What would native speakers use?

and / at the same time as / simultaneously or something else

Please help

Thank you.

The most ordinary phrase would be

He is listening to music and practicing handwriting

If you want to emphasise that it is simultaneous

He is cooking and doing his homework at the same time

But you can certainly use _simultaneously__ and at the same time as.
